The Arabidopsis protein COP1, encoded by the constitutive photomorphogenic locus 1, is an essential regulatory molecule that plays a role in the repression of photomorphogenic development in darkness and in the ability of light-grown plants to respond to photoperiod, end-of-day far-red treatment, and ratio of red/far-red light. The COP1 protein contains(More)
SystemC has been widely accepted for the description of electronic systems. An essential advantage of a SystemC description is the possibility of a built-in compiled-code simulation. Beyond the functional simulation for validation of a hardware design, there are additional requirements for an advanced simulation of faults in order to analyze the system(More)
Fault simulation technology is essential key not only to the validation of test patterns for ICs and SoCs, but also to the analysis of system behavior under fault transient and intermittent faults. For this purpose, we developed a hierarchical fault simulation environment that uses structural VHDL models at the gate level, but is able to model embedded(More)
Systems on a chip (SoCs) that consist of one or several processor devices, other complex functional blocks, embedded memories plus multiple interconnects are a big challenge to design and test technology. The simulation of such complex systems under fault conditions is an open problem, since RTL simulators typically do not provide simple means of fault(More)
Physical design for digital ICs, based on standard cells, has long been performed without explicit consideration of timing and power related to interconnects. With delays on wires more and more dominating the delays on logic paths, such design styles are becoming obsolete. What is needed is an iterative inclusion of power and timing aspects into the design(More)
